Due to high demand, two extra RFID sniffer workshops are scheduled for May 22nd
and June 18th
After some shortage due to all the publicity, RFID sniffers and kits are now back in stock!

A 2-page report with photos
of my RFID sniffer workshop at Mediamatic
in Amsterdam on April 4th 2009, in the April 8th edition of the Dutch daily newspaper nrc•next
. By Robert Buzink (who also succesfully assembled a RFID sniffer) and Jørgen Krielen.

Following the huge success of my RFID sniffer workshops, the first RFIDuino workshop will be hosted by Mediamatic in Amsterdam, on May 15th, 2009.
At this workshop you will assemble an RFIDuino, and start coding RFID applications right away on your Arduino. Bring your own Arduino and laptop!
The first workshop is already sold out, but a second is scheduled for June 19th.

Electronic parts of RFID sniffer kits are back in stock, but I'm still waiting for the lanyards and sleeves. They are currently in production, and will be shipped to me this week. I will send out all RFID sniffer kits immediately upon arrival of the lanyards.
If anybody who already ordered can not wait any longer, and wants to start soldering right away, please let me know and I will ship the kit without lanyard and sleeve and ship those afterwards at no extra cost.
Apologies for the unexpected delay.

RFIDuino is a Arduino
shield which can read and write 13.56 MHz ISO-14443A (Mifare) RFID tags. It plugs upside-down on top of a Arduino, maintaining a 20mm board to board spacing. Mounting hardware and assembly instructions are included.
Free Arduino code library available soon. Here's a simple example
to read tag ids.
The RFDIduino kit is now available at shop.marcboon.com

This morning I received my first batch of RFIDuino circuit boards. I quickly assembled one to see if my zero-defect design philosophy still holds... and yes, it did!
Even without tweaking the component values, I got clear readings from
several types of Mifare
tags I have lying around (1K, 4K and
UltraLight). Shown here is a Arduino Diecimila
next to my RFIDuino, and a ikTag
, which is a Mifare 1K RFID tag.
The RFIDuino plugs upside-down onto the Arduino, and has its LEDs mounted through-hole, literally.
In the next few days I will do some more testing and finalize the kit
contents. RFIDuino will be in my web shop very soon! I will offer the
kit for €45 plus €5 for shipping.
I will also write up some more elaborate code examples, possibly a full-fledged Arduino library, to make life easier for you
RFID coders :)

One step closer to eternal fame.. I'm in MAKE magazine
Ironically, I was in New York instead of Amsterdam at the time of publishing, so I could not handle the wave of new orders resulting from this blog post. Shipping will resume as soon as all parts are back in stock.

RFIDuino is an Arduino shield for reading and writing 13.56 MHz RFID
tags. It consists of a 65x65mm circuit board, which plugs upside-down onto a
standard Arduino (NG, Diecimila, Duemilanove, or BlueTooth).
The board has a build-in
antenna and contains all the circuitry to read and write 13.56 MHz ISO-14443A (Mifare) RFID tags. It is connected to the Arduino by I2C, using the Wire library.
I build a prototype during Picnic '08
, documented here
The production version will be available
in my web shop from early April.
